  • Cut back foliage of tulips.
  • Trim other shrubs to shape as necessary.
  • Plant warm season grasses such as penisetum and panicum.
  • Treat bindweed/groundelder and other invasive weeds growing among other plants by applying a glyphosate based weed killer to their leaves.
  • Prune ornamental cherries after their flowers have faded.
  • There is still time to sow quick germinating annuals such as cosmos.
  • Sow winter bedding such as violas etc.
